Make-you-melt Daddy moments



Max's teacher, Erin, sent me this shot of Dave and Max from last week. She invited parents to read to the class, and Dave stopped by and read Alexander and the Wind-up Mouse. Dave said Max got the biggest smile on his face when Dave walked in and evidently, it stayed.

I love this photo.

Every once in a while, I'll notice Dave doing something with the kids and my heart melts a little. Like when I come upon him and Max cuddling on the couch, watching sports. Or when he's struggling to get Sabrina into her little pink leotard for gymnastics. Or when he plants his annual tomatoes with the two of them by his side, tossing clumps of dirt around. Or when he picks up both kids in his big bear arms and carries them somewhere.

I fell in love with Dave soon after we first met. And I fell in love with him all over again when he became a dad.

  1. What a beautiful photograph. That's a keeper.

    I wish I had more pics of the boys with their daddy. My momma has some, and they're real nice-- I just need to get copies. There's never enough time in the day! Your topic today, though, makes me think about asking her if she can give me some copies that I can frame and put in the boys' rooms.

    For now I have to get some sleep. I hate working overnights!!

  6. There is nothing sexier than a good Dad. I love seeing photos of Dad's and their kiddos! Max looks so happy that his Daddy came in to read to the class. What a great moment!

  8. I'm not going to let Dave see all the comments or his head's going to swell up!
